Thanks Roman!

For others who, like me, are qshell / awk noobs, I copied the script Roman
provided into a (Windows) text file and saved it to my IFS folder. (For
simplicity's sake, I also stored the COBOL copybook text file in the same
folder.) I opened the script in Notepad++ and saved it as a "Unix script
file (*.sh; *.bsh)", thinking that this might get rid of the CR
characters. I tried running the script in qshell as is, but kept getting
syntax errors. Google was *not* my friend for the syntax problem, but I
did find that Notepad++ can automatically convert end-of-line characters.
In Notepad++, I clicked on View / Show Symbol / Show End of Line. Here, I
could see that each line ended with CR/LF. To remove the CR, click Edit /
EOL Conversion / UNIX/OSX Format. Now the script runs like a charm.

In addition to this script not resolving REDEFINEs (per Roman's earlier
note in the thread), it also doesn't resolve OCCURS.
